This is a regular expression, as supported by MySQL, which is used
to limit the Sources to be displayed.
See Henry Spencer"s regex page.
If the pattern contains no special
characters then only Sources containing that string will be included.
For example the pattern "London" will match Sources containing the
string "London". Note that the search ignores case, so that pattern
will also match "LONDON" and "london".
If the pattern begins with a caret '^' then only Sources that
begin with the remainder of the pattern are included. For example
the pattern "^Ba" displays Sources starting with "Ba" (or "ba" or "BA").
If the pattern ends with a dollar sign '$', then only Sources that
end with the remainder of the pattern are included. For example
the pattern "CA$" matches Sources that end with "CA" (or "ca" or "Ca").
In a pattern a period '.' matches any single character. For example
the pattern 'B.b' matches any Source that contains two letter Bs
by one character, for example "Bab", "Beb", "Bib", "Bob", or "Bub".
In a pattern an asterisk '*' matches zero or more of the preceding
character; "bo*b" matches "bb", "bob", and "boob".
